Letters and Sounds
Enclosed is a sheet of letters which relate to the letter sounds your child has been learning at school. Carefully cut them up and play
Letter hunt together.
Here are some ideas –
Hide the letters around the room and encourage your child to go on a letter hunt.
Other activities to include
Make words from the letters.
Put them in alphabetical order.Create different games and activities yourself. Have fun!
Practise either the phase 2 or phase 3 phonemes everyday, depending on your child's ability. If your child doesn't easily recognise a particular sound, please help them to learn it until they become familiar. Daily practise will help with this! Children have also learnt actions to go with these sounds so please encourage your child to use them and to teach you too! You can play phonics games online at

‘Letters and Sounds’
Why do we need to learn ‘Letters and Sounds’?
TO READ AND TO WRITE
First let’s go over the letters that we have learnt so far in your little blue book.

Remember two letters that make one sound is called a ‘Diagraph’ and three letters that make one sound is called a ‘trigraph.’
